On October 16 and 17, 2019, the New Brunswick RCMP's Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit (TTEU), along with members of the Tracadie detachment, and Motor Vehicle Inspectors with the New Brunswick Department of Public Safety conducted enforcement operations in Paquetville , Caraquet, Shippagan, Saint-Isidore and Tracadie, targeting unsafe vehicles.
In all, 65 vehicles were inspected, with 14 vehicles being towed, including 10 that were found to be unsafe for the road. In addition, 46 tickets were issued for violations such as having an expired or invalid registration or inspection certificate, driving without a valid licence, and driving an unsafe vehicle.
